Edo Guber: Two More Candidates Step Down For Osagie Ize-Iyamu
This brings to four the number of candidates, who have so far withdrawn from the race for Ize-Iyamu, after the candidates of KOWA Party, Thompson Osadolor, and the People for Democratic Change, PDC, Bishop Akharame, took a similar road earlier.
Making their declaration at a PDP rally in Okpella, Etsako East Local Government Area of the state, Ofomile and Igwemoh claimed their decision stemmed out of the bigger issue of the good of Edo people, Vanguard writes.
Igwemoh, who hails from Governor Oshiomhole’s Iyamho community, pointed out that he had chosen to align with Ize-Iyamu as the issue of who governs Edo State was not a “brotherly affair.”
While berating the governor for favouritism and failure to deliver on campaign promises, the ADC candidate said: “We have collapsed our structure and are now working for a team that can take Edo State to Eldorado. They (APC) promised to create 200,000 jobs when they have not even created 10, 000 jobs.”
In his remark, Pastor Ize-Iyamu laid into Governor Oshiomhole for abandoning Okpella despite the overwhelming support given to him, adding that the governor ruled as if Okpella was not part of Etsako and ignored the huge potentials in the area.
“I want to assure you that we will not disappoint you. We will harness the huge mineral resources in Okpella. They have punished you for too long, and you must punish them for abandoning you.”
